    Edit: Please note: this set still uses Fremble v4. I am working on fixing my Twilight Scout design (my prints had some fusing problems), and will update to Fremble v6 when that is done. For the time being, please see Fremble v6's thread for order links.

    EDIT: Fixed all the files except Dark Minion Complete. Stupid me accidentally pressed the wrong button. Everything's fine now, i'll fix the Complete file asap.

    And now to release these guys for real! You've all seen my Dark Fremble Twins, which i released about a week or so ago. Here's their pals! Dark Minions, Ravager, Beast, Sqwawk, Saw and Beak.

    As you all know by now, these guys are designed to work with WFC Soundwave. In alt mode, they fit into his chest, where the guns normally are, while in robot mode they can terrorise Autobots.

    Ravager: Transforms from Jaguar to Turntable to SSD (Solid State Drive) mode. Fremble loves the Turntable, apparently. :) 

    Beast: Transforms from Gorilla to SSD mode. Incredible physical strength compared to the other Minions, leaves the Talking to his partner Sqwawk.

    Sqwawk: Transforms from Bird to SSD mode. Never shuts up. :lol 

    Beak: Transforms from Bird to SSD mode. Always competing with Saw to be Soundwave's favorite bird.

    Saw: Transforms from Bird to SSD mode. Better tracker than Beak, hates losing.

    These are all available through Shapeways. There are two ways to get them. You can buy them separately, or save yourself $5 and order them as Dark Minion Volume 1. As an added bonus, buy Volume 1, and get a bonus Twilight Scout Minion!

    Warning: Separating Fremble units from turntables may result in a piledriver connecting with your face. ;)  :lol 

    All the Dark Minions you see here are printed in WSF/BSF/Some other Strong and Flexible, because that's the best material for the ball joints. I do offer them in Detail materials, which they are designed to work in. Of course, i don't have a Detail one in hand, so...y'know... *shrugs* I designed them to work in Detail, but a physical copy i don't have.

    You want this Twilight Scout Minion? Well, it comes free with Dark Minion Volume 1!

    Can they fit into an unmodded WFC Soundwave? I know you're original ones need the mod you had designed for him?
    If so, Im just may pick up a set - I love the Beast one.

    No mods needed, I designed them to work without mods. And my Soundwave's mod wasn't really a deliberate mod, so much as I left it at engineering class near a circular saw... :(  pro tip: never leave a toy near a power tool and expect to get it back in one piece. :lol

    QFT. They're sooooo adorably evil.

    Question, what material were those done in? They look... fuzzy. >_>

    Still cool, but I guess that material isn't quite the one to use.

    WSF. They're fuzzy because I used my Phone Camera which is shoddy.

    Not bad at all man. It's good to see you branching out into the other minions. Good job on them.

    Thanks for the kind words all. :) 

    Apparently there's been a slight scaling issue. When i uploaded to Shapeways, i'm guessing i must've clicked the wrong button or something, because they all (aside from Fremble) came out slightly smaller than expected. Anyways, i'm fixing the issue as we speak, and i'll post again when it's all ready to go. The final product won't be any different functionally, except that everyone (barring Fremble) will be slightly larger. :)

    MP! Thanks bro! Heh, they do look tasty. I wouldn't recommend eating them though! :lol 

    Oh, and i've fixed all the files except Dark Minion Complete. Stupid me pressed "mm" instead of "inches". My stupidity amazes even me... :(  :banghead:

    Could you post any pics non-painted? They look really... rough, and I don't think it's the camera. Plus I'm probably not really going to paint mine if I get them.

    Particularly the not-Ravage, if you don't mind.

    Thanks!

    Im afraid I Ordered All mine in dyed Strong and Flexible. And I only photographed them after paint. I don't have any photos of them unpainted.

    Mmm...robots... :drool:
